Get ready food lovers, after a successful first month in Feb, Towri Growers Market is back the first Saturday of each month! With the cost of living rising, and the quality of supermarket offerings becoming victim to shrinkflation, it’s the perfect time to start buying produce directly from the growers. Towri Growers Markets are the ideal opportunity buy amazing quality produce direct from the farmers and cut out the middleman. 

This market is perfect for foodies, adventurers and flavour chasers, sippers and tipplers, recipe gypsies, thinkers, local produce lovers, fur babies and friends of farms.   

Taking place on the farm at Towri Sheep Cheeses just outside Brisbane, near Beaudesert in the Scenic Rim, these markets Starring REAL producers and growers ONLY (so there’s no pop-ups and part-timers who view the local grocery store or Rocklea Markets as their ‘paddocks’), the monthly paddock to plate growers market will allow for shopping direct from a collective of Scenic Rim farmers, on the stunning grounds of an artisan sheep farm and cheesery.

 Dallas Davidson from Towri Sheep Cheeses says, “Our Growers Market initiative has been months in planning as a pivot to offset the challenges we are expecting this year in terms of drought. However, following the Christmas Day tornado on Tamborine Mountain and the recent flooding, it is even more important for people to support the growers and producers of the region.”

“Our producer community is resilient, we’ve lived through fire, floods, drought, Covid, and now a tornado, but we need people from all over South East Queensland to come and support us, to buy direct from us as growers and producers, to get to know us, to share our stories and become our extended family. We are just an hour from Brisbane and a little more from the Gold Coast, but the trip means the world to us, and we guarantee it’s a better experience than walking up and down the aisle of a major grocery store. We promise a brilliant market, plus lots to do—there’s sheep milking demonstrations, loads of sheep pats, great lawn games, wine tasting and more, and fur babies are welcome!”

Stars of the monthly market are names known, loved and highly respected and awarded, including Tommerup Dairy Farm, Towri Sheep Cheeses, Valley Pride Produce, Harry’s Paddock, The Black Bee Apiary, Baney Creek Vineyard, the chefs from Embers Woodfire, The Lingering Baker and many more.

Kay Tommerup from the sixth generation Tommerup Dairy Farm says, ”If there’s one thing that I’ve learnt about farmers and producers in the Scenic Rim, it’s that we always find a way. A way to rebuild, regroup, reinvent, and reimagine. Anything is possible when we work together and support each other. The Towri Growers Market has come from producers supporting each other to create a regular on-farm produce experience, where authenticity and connection to farmers is our focus. On the first Saturday of each month, you’ll find the best of Scenic Rim produce all available in one fabulous place. A collection of our farmer friends will bring their wares—from our family farms to your family table.”
